I am pleased to announce that the stone for this event has been very generously donated by Veizeys Quarry in Tetbury http://www.stonesuppliescotswolds.co.uk/index.php
I have been carving this beautiful stone now for 7yrs and I have never found fault with this material. It has a golden colour which matures and develops with age, it weathers incredibly well -so confident am I that there is one of my commissions carved in this stone on the North Coast of Scotland here is the post from my website http://www.catseyecarving.co.uk/2012/07/the-cherubs-2/
The size that the masons wil be carving is 8 x 8 x 12 inches which is an ideal size to create something beautiful that you could own if you come along and bid in the auction! I will also be carving something before the event which will be raffled off to raise money as well.
If you would like to try your hand at Stonemasonry I will be running have ago sessions on Saturday and Sunday-times to be announced.
The auction will take place at 3pm on May in the docks main stage area.
